The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life by Hal Elrod
In this book, Hal Elrod explains that to become successful and achieve our goals, it is necessary to harness the potential power that is found within a solid morning routine. IE If you start your day right the rest will follow.
According to Hal Elrod, your life, will change for the better when you follow six principles, called S.A.V.E.R.S. to start your day.
S – Silence. By starting the day doing inward-directed activities such as meditation, breathing exercises or prayer it will enhance the rest of your day with calm and peacefulness.
A – Affirmations. “Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily” Tia Walker. Affirmations can be sayings or quotes that you choose to repeat to yourself on a regular basis to develop a positive mindset.
V – Visualisations. Visualisations help us to reflect on the type of future that we want.
E – Exercise. Elrod states that having some sort of regular exercise regimen is crucial to success - walking, swimming.....
R – Reading. It is important to make reading a habit to expand our knowledge and perspective on life. It's very easy to think that we don't have time to read but just in the act of making reading - eg 10 pages a day - a priority then it helps us slow down and regain control.
S – Scribing (or journaling) . Make some time each day to write down your thoughts and ask yourself questions about what you want from your life. Not only does it provide a tangible record for your thoughts and emotions and progress but studies show that it can help towards mental health and calm.
